The High-five License is a license offered exclusively to pre-revenue startups or bootstrapped companies. The High-five License grants the rights to use our software in the same type of projects as the Developer License, but the license applies for up to two developers only, and is valid for one year. The Developer type License (Single Developer, 5 Developers, 10 Developers, etc.) applies to websites, web applications and SaaS projects and for your chosen number of developers to work on our source code.
With the Developer License, you will be entitled to use our software in any kind of web project, i.e. websites, web applications, intranets or SaaS. If you will be using our software in your product or service for distribution to your customers' premises, the OEM License is needed. The OEM License is an extension of the Developer License, which means that in scenarios where you might have a combination of hosted and on-premise distribution the OEM License will cover this.
As a contractor you are covered by your customer’s license, and allowed to work on our software on their behalf. Your customer needs to own the License as the project will be served from their premises, however you can purchase it by entering your customers name in the Licensee filed when you are in our checkout.
If you are distributing our software as a native app, the Mobile OEM License is needed. If this the app is not native, or a hybrid app, you will be covered by the Developer License. Please contact our sales team, and we will help you find the appropriate license.
With any Highsoft software license, you will get a perpetual license for the current version of Highcharts, Highstock or Highmaps. All licenses include Basic Support free of charge, and Premium Support is offered at an additional fee.
No, the developer license is not personal and applies to the number of seats, not the individual. You need a license for every developer who will be working on a Highsoft Software Product, i.e. the Highcharts 5 Developer License allows for up to 5 developers to work on Highcharts. If a sixth developer will be working with our software, you need to purchase an additional seat. However, if one of the current 5 leaves the company, and is replaced, you will be covered by the 5 developer seats.
A customer installation is a distribution of your product to user premises. Installations for purposes of testing, development, and demonstration are not included in the installation count. A customer installation does not include developer rights to our software to end users. If this is needed, please let us know. The number of installations will not expire nor recurr annually. For upgrades to more customer installations, please contact us.
Yes, the license is perpetual for the current major version, including all minor versions. Upon launch of new major version, you can purchase an Update to get access to the new version of our software.
